Maybe there's hope still
The kind of relationship I'm looking for isn't typical. I have major problems with physical intimacy and am asexual. I need emotional support, encouragement, and companionship. But not many people understand that what I want is basically friendship plus. I explained that to my crush tonight and she asked me a few questions and seemed interested. She's gonna talk to her 3 partners and see if everyone agrees with the arrangements. It's long distance and at first she didn't understand how it would work but now she seems to get it. So I'm cautiously optimistic.
